6:16am
will see just a few high clouds in the forecast throughout the day today and the rest of your weekend. but as we go into the upcoming work week, we will see extra cloud cover. as we bow into the middle of the week, the possibility of rain comes back our way slightly. 37 in santa rosa right now. the numbers continue to drop to the north with the clear skies, the lower dewpoints. 35 degrees in napa. holding on to some of the warmth over by the delta with a bit of a breeze. low 40s from livermore, hayward and las got toes. with the sutro camera with the sky. mid-40s san carlos and 44 oakland with 49 in san francisco. so featuring the high clouds, but mostly sunny throughout the weekend. and the rain chances, they are with us in the seven-day outlook but they are pushed back until the middle to latter part of the week. so a long ways away. that could change. 24 hours ago we were a little
6:17am
bit warmer. so it is much cool we're those mid-and upper 30s in the north bay and napa, santa rosa and novato with cooling in san jose. average high temperatures today upper 60s. south end of the bay a few degrees warmer there. we will still look for the breeze to hold on along the shoreline. that's due to the alignment of high pressure offshore. it is building into the eastern pacific but with low pressure to the east of us, it will keep the coast breezy and numbers seasonable there in the upper 50s. but it's also going to allow for the area of high pressure to keep the clouds and the storm track mainly to the north. in the days ahead it will weaken and slightly move to the east. that will allow for a few upper level systems to head our way. not until monday. tomorrow still sunny with high clouds occasionally but that will keep the temperatures pretty nice, 60s and 70s. you can see that running the
6:18am
gamut from north to south although low 50s in eureka and 61 yosemite. very little snowpack there in parts of the sierra, but spring skiing is a big deal around here. perhaps you are headed that way for the weekend ahead. 69 for milpitas. mid-60s, and 64 milbrae. 62 downtown in the north bay. mainly upper 60s to 70 in napa and 67 san leandro and out over the east bay looking at highs from the low 70 #* 70 # in fairfield. changes come monday and tuesday with increasing clouds. that will bring the numbers down by tuesday. slight chance of showers wednesday and thursday. a better chance by the end of the week. so hopefully it doesn't rain on any of those egg hunts that we have before easter. abc7 news has yet another great weather resource for you to follow. that's live doppler 7hd on twitter for the latest

a pretty nice weekend. but things will be changing as a series of weak area low pressure will drop down from the northern pacific. that will allow for some changes as we begin the work week. we will show them to you in just a moment. but we are talking about some pretty cool temperatures this morning. take a look as we begin to see the beginning of day light with clear conditions. here's a look from our emeryville camera. 36 santa rosa, 35 in napa with low 40s from livermore and hayward. 42 los gatos and also from our sutro camera, boy, isn't this pretty? no fog to speak of. that still will allow for cool numbers at our coast due to the on shore winds. the northerly winds will be backing off but through the overnight hours it has allowed for the fog to stay absent and the dewpoints to lower and the temperatures to cool. although we are still pretty mild in san francisco at 49. 40 in santa cruz, 49 half moon bay.
6:49am
a few high clouds today, tomorrow. keeping us mostly sunny throughout the weekend. rain chances, they are in the seven-takeout look but they have been pushed back to the middle of the week and they are beginning to get a little more believable by the end of the week. so we will see what happens. but this morning we are certainly colder anywhere from five to seven degrees colder from the napa valley, santa rosa, novato and san jose. the coast a few degrees cooler, as well as oakland with the mid-40s this morning. the clear sky allowing for the chilly numbers. but high pressure is still our fair weather-maker. it is staying offshore. it will begin to slightly move to the east by the beginning of the up-coming work week. that's when the ridge begins to weaken. it will keep us dry, though. as it weakens and slides east, that will allow for the weak systems to head down from the pacific northwest. there's about three of them that will work to bring increasing clouds and the chance of showers probably by wednesday.
6:50am
even though it's just a slight chance. by tomorrow we are starting out once again with the clear sky and the afternoon featuring more sunshine. a few high clouds and numbers very spring-like with 50s along the north coast. 53 there, 72 in sacramento, 74 in los angeles. so numbers a couple degrees above average in san jose today at 70. 69 in milpitas. a beautiful day from man mattio, 65. 69 in in here. the cool 50s return for stinson beach, 68 sonoma and near east bay, 65 in richmond but about 68 in fremont. you head out over the hills and we've got the 70s for you from san ramon to concord. and the look ahead with temperatures just a few degrees warmer, tomorrow the warmest day of the work week, and then a few more thin clouds on monday and tuesday. we are looking at increasing clouds, a slight chance of showers wednesday, thursday and
